The Town of Aurora welcomes and encourages residents of all abilities to have equitable and meaningful access to recreation opportunities. This is accomplished through specialized programming, individualized support options and accessible facilities for patrons with disabilities or unique needs. 

Integrated Opportunities

Participants requiring extra support can either:

1. Attend a program with their own support person; or

2. Attend a program with a 1:1 Inclusion Support Worker provided by the Town of Aurora (additional hourly cost applies).

Participants require additional support if:

  • They have extra support at school or at home;
  • A physical, medical, or developmental/learning disability exists that affects the safety of others;
  • Extra support is required at home for basic care such as dressing and toileting;
  • The individual is currently associated with a support agency or program; or
  • There are challenging behaviours to be managed.

Mediator Pass - Drop-in Programs

Support workers are welcome to attend recreation programs. Mediator Passes allow individuals who require support to be accompanied by a mediator in our Aquatics, Fitness, Gymnasium Drop-ins and pay-as-you-go activities without additional costs to the Mediator. 

To obtain a mediator pass, please visit the Customer Service desk at either the Aurora Family Leisure Complex or the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex.
